By Bulldog Drummond

Arsenal v Manchester United. On home / away form we are clear favourites. Elneny and Eddie: what happens now to Arsenal’s heroes against Chelsea?

One of the intriguing factors this season is looking to see how various clubs near the top of the league have performed against each other. And indeed as […]

Arsenal v Manchester United: the tackles, the fouls and the yellow cards

By Bulldog Drummond

Arsenal v Manchester United. On home / away form we are clear favourites.

Manchester United are one of that small number of teams that have beaten Arsenal, more than Arsenal have beaten them. The current score is 100 wins to them, 85 to us with 50 draws. Although to get to this […]

Elneny and Eddie: what happens now to Arsenal’s heroes against Chelsea?

No sooner is one member of the “big six” swatted away with ease than up pops another one ready to be dealt with.

But the big news is that Manchester United have finally got their new manager. He is a […]

Elneny and Eddie: what happens now to Arsenal’s heroes against Chelsea?

By Tony Attwood

I have long wondered (and occasionally mentioned) my puzzlement over why Mohammed Elneny was not utilised more in the Arsenal team, particularly when we were hit by injuries. Indeed back in 2020 I wrote the headline What do Arsenal have to do to get a good press? Play Partey and Elneny.

There’s nobody here, just like the old days. Arsenal smother Chelsea

Chelsea v Arsenal: a ray of hope in the recent home and away figures

Oh what fun. After such a miserable three results, smashing the Russian Oligarch XI 2-4 at the oil terminal was a wonderful victory. And the “There’s nobody here” song was a beautiful bonus. Even the complete cock up […]

Chelsea v Arsenal: the Arsenal team

Have Arsenal improved or declined in relation to last season? Chelsea v Arsenal: Tackles, fouls and yellow cards Chelsea v Arsenal: a ray of hope in the recent home and away figures

We know that Chelsea have a few injury problems, with Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi […]

Have Arsenal improved or declined in relation to last season?

By Bulldog Drummond

As we approach tonight’s game against Chelsea there are many correspondents talking as if the whole of Arsenal is a disaster, and suggesting that the management should be changed along with most of the players.

It is interesting that this is primarily the result of three games – which is exactly what […]

Chelsea v Arsenal: Tackles, fouls and yellow cards

By Bulldog Drummond

We had quite a debate recently after a reader tried to convince us all that the analysis of tackles, fouls and yellow cards was pointless when “everybody knows cards are a product of quality and not quantity of fouls.”

Actually, not everyone knew this, simply because it is completely untrue, as the […]

Chelsea v Arsenal: a ray of hope in the recent home and away figures

By Bulldog Drummond

The home and away figures of Arsenal and Chelsea return us to a sense of reality after the wild assertions that Refs give yellow cards because of the quality of the fouls committed which according to our correspondent “everyone knows” but which the figures show is completely untrue.

The Super League is still alive and kicking and here’s why

By Tony Attwood

La Liga president Javier Tebas, president of La Liga, got rather annoyed with the Super League clubs accusing them of “lying more than Putin.”

This was just about the time Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli told an audience at the Financial Times’ “Business of Football Summit” in London last month. “Twelve clubs signed […]

Do refs give yellow cards because of the quality or quantity of the fouls committed?

By Tony Attwood

The correspondent known as “Ukp” recently wrote to Untold, commenting on our use of the “tackle/foul/card stats” noting that this is “where you analyse numbers of fouls Vs number of cards and deduce ref bias, when everybody knows cards are a product of quality and not quantity of fouls.”

I am not […]

The 58 players Arsenal tipped to sign this summer with over 130 days to go

What happened to the 134 players said to be coming to Arsenal last summer?

Last summer the journalists’ failure rate in predicting transfers was 96%. And what made this even more staggering than the size of that number is that this was their most successful window since we started tracking transfer rumours around ten […]

If Fifa won’t ban Russian officials from its gatherings, we should get out of Fifa

By Tony Attwood

They are pretty much pariahs around the world – Russian athletes and teams are banned from participating in any form of world sport, as a protest against the invasion of Ukraine.

Except in football, where Russian officials are still welcomed with open arms. So when the Fifa Congress opened in Qatar, there […]

For some Arsenal fans improvement isn’t enough; but this is not the time to change again

By Tony Attwood

Reading the game: why do journalists always know more than managers?

Obviously, we all want Arsenal to improve. Probably the only time no one talked about improvement was after the Unbeaten Season. But the rest of the time we want each season to be better.

And the media tells us day after […]

Arsenal: another defeat. What has gone so wrong after last year’s triumph?

Arsenal are of course not the only team that has had an upset of late. Bayern Munich were knocked out of the Champions League by Villareal managed by… well since you ask, Unai Emery, so recently removed from Arsenal.

Arsenal: another defeat. What has gone so wrong after last year’s triumph?

By Tony Attwood

Nitram’s comments after the game yesterday told us a lot of what has gone wrong. He quoted the average statistics from our last 3 matches:

Arsenal Possession = 70% Opponent Possession = 30% Arsenal Shots = 55 Opponent Shots = 23 Arsenal Shots On Target = 13 Opponent Shots On Target […]

Arsenal and the “big chances” myth ahead of the Southampton game

Arsenal’s salvation: After 30 games we always improve

The Guardian has come out with one of its famous statements: “if Arsenal show up and play with an ounce of positivity then Ralph Hasenhüttl’s usual forward-thinking approach should allow for plenty of chances. Chances have so often gone unfinished this season, however.”

There has been some commentary concerning the injury list and how we are being decimated by injuries. We are in […]

Southampton v Arsenal: how the refs treat each team, how the managers have done

By Bulldog Drummond

As we saw yesterday there are huge variations in the ways that referees treat different teams in the Premier League when it comes to tackles, fouls and yellow cards. Now it is time to focus just on this weekend’s opponents, Southampton, and their differences from Arsenal.

Those differences are modest but are […]

The continuing strange tale of how PL referees punish tackles Why do rich men want to buy football clubs?

It has taken us four years of mucking about with managers to get us back to the position where we were in 2017 – the penultimate season of the Wenger years. 30 games […]

The continuing strange tale of how PL referees punish tackles

By Bulldog Drummond

We have often noted the great change that came over Arsenal last season as the club worked to eliminate tackles from their playing style. And in fact this has worked as Arsenal are now 19th in the tackles league for the Premier League this season; only Manchester City undertake fewer tackles. The […]

In one sense it seems a crazy thing to do – to buy a big football club where the fans have expectations of success. After all most clubs […]

PREVIOUSLY: Changes to the financial controls of clubs in Europe looked doomed to failure

By Tony Attwood

The argument that I am trying to make is that there is a huge amount going on in football which is beneath the surface and is not being covered by the English media because journalists are afraid that […]

8 more players coming to Arsenal making total of 52 incoming players this summer

By Tony Attwood

It is always interesting to see the treatment that clubs and their managers are given by the media. Unai Emery, while at Arsenal was portrayed as inept, and lacking in insight but now […]
